Posted by TSUE on August 4, 2008

Take Back Your Family By Rev Run & Justine Simmons
 
An icon of hip-hop, a father of six and an ordained minister, Rev Run has developed a parenting stile that is in a class by itself. With his wife Justine, he launched the blockbuster reality series Run’s House on MTV, now filming its fifth season. The show has proven wildly popular in large part due to the way the Simmons family response to very twenty-first century issues. Emphasizing firm boundaries, noble values, discipline, and faith in age marked by shallow materialism and fragmented families, Rev Run now shares the proven principles that have given his children a firm foundation, including:
  • Run your family as the COE’s Chief Officers of Everything
  • Understand that you can never correct wheat you did not confront
  • Lead by example, not by preaching: Hypocrisy and parenting are a destructive combination.
  • Today’s fast-paced world can often make children feel small; your job is to help them feel large.
  • Older children need more rules and parental involvement, not less.

Reaching and average weekly audience of 4.1 million viewers, Run’s House speaks to America’s fascination with high-profile parents. Take Back Your Family brings home the behind-the-scenes wisdom of hip-hop’s first family to everyone seeking solid guidance for raising a new generation.

Jim Wetzel and Lance Lawson from Jake, www.shopjake.com.

Posted by TSUE on August 4, 2008

 

  For any trend reports or style guides you might be working on, I wanted to offer you two amazing sources:  style experts and Jake co-owners Jim Wetzel (39; left in attached photo) and Lance Lawson (37; right), who have built a fashion empire in Chicago and on www.shopjake.com, and have risen to the forefront in the fashion world by showcasing emerging and establishing designers such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Behnaz Sarafpour, Doo.Ri, Giuseppe Zanotti, Lutz & Patmos, Rupert Sanderson, M Missoni, Thread Social and Vanessa Bruno.

 

Since opening their first location on Southport Avenue in Spring of 2004, Wetzel and Lawson have risen to be a major fashion player, with two additional locations (in the Gold Coast and Winnetka) and plans to open the first East Coast Jake location in New York City in the near future. The duo also runs a significant on-line business with their web site shopjake.com.  They have become the go-to style experts in Chicago and have been featured as trend-forecasters in numerous national publications, style.com and FOX news.  Jake is the largest Chicago-based independent designer retailer with nearly 25 full time employees.

 

Hailed “The Kings of Cool” by the Chicago Tribune, Wetzel and Lawson travel the globe to find the “next big thing” to bring back to Chicago.  The duo goes on as many as 14 buying trips annually where they hand-select Jake’s product assortment.  In addition to partnering with new talent, Jake was also recently selected as the Chicago-area distribution partner for the re-launch of the Calvin Klein Collection.  Additionally, many of the designers Wetzel and Lawson championed when they first opened are now major fixtures in the national department stores.

 

Jake creates a modern sales environment with a heavy focus on exceptional customer service.  Committed to showcasing unique and wearable items for men and women, Wetzel and Lawson pay close attention to fashion, fit and timeless style. Jake also features a carefully edited selection of the world’s best premium denim lines. 

 

As domestic partners as well as business partners, Wetzel and Lawson started their company because they believed the Chicago consumer wanted more.  Four years later, their avid train of repeat clients has proven this to be true. Also, Jake’s dollar per square foot sales numbers more than double the industry average.  In addition to a devoted client base, Jake also attracts celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kanye West, Jeremy Piven, Rod Stewart and John Stamos.

 

Below is a list of some of the awards that Wetzel and Lawson have received since opening their first location.

 

·        FGI Super Star Award 2008

·        FGI Rising Star 2005

·        Selected as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Best and Brightest” young businessmen for 2007

Looks like Sean Avery and Kelly Klein are in like with each other

Posted by TSUE on August 4, 2008

Word on the street is that  Sean Avery former New York Ranger, and now a Dallas Star has been seen around town with none other than Clavin Klein’s ex Kelly Klein. I can’t see what the fuss is over. Both are consenting adults. Kelly is 51 and Sean is 28. Age is just a number. When you pass go…it doesn’t make much difference. I say roll with it Sean. Kelly is a beautiful women and you are not bad on the eyes at all.

BRETT FAVRE’S FINAL PLAY … BY OVIE MUGHELLI (WITH VIDEO!)

Posted by TSUE on August 4, 2008

Ovie Mughelli on Brett Farve

Ovie Mughelli

When Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli stopped by this spring, we were somewhat intrigued by his acting skills. At the time, Brett Favre was calling it a career, and we thought we’d let Ovie take a shot at re-enacting Brett’s final play. Since then, Favre has managed to stay in the news-he does this extremely well-and now we’re unsure if Ovie’s depiction is a part of our future, or past. As in, was this Brett’s final play, or is it still yet to come? Either way, we thought we’d let you decide. With a little prodding, any NFL star with some acting chops can become Brett Favre. Then again, maybe it’s just Ovie.
